Morning links: Huskies tickets for sale on Groupon

Another closed practice awaits the Washington Huskies today, but there will again be player and coach availability afterward. There is links availability now.

--- Here's our story in today's newspaper, looking at the Huskies' options at running back. The version on the blog is a little longer than the version in the print edition.

--- This is what Chris Petersen had to say about his new Twitter account: "First of all, Twitter is not for you guys. It’s for the recruits. I think when Facebook came out I said, ‘Facebook? No one’s gonna do that’. And when I heard about Twitter, I don’t know how many years ago, I was like, ‘That’s not a good idea. No one is going to do that’. So I’m still behind the times,” Petersen said. “It’s always had to do with recruiting, so that’s the best way for us to communicate with those guys and that’s what it’s all about."

--- Looks like cheaper tickets to Washington's Sept. 6 home opener against Eastern Washington or its Sept. 20 game against Georgia State can be obtained via Groupon, which is selling $56.25 tickets for $30 apiece. In sections 332 or 302. Shocking they couldn't sell those at face value.
